Clinical features of Chinese patients with relapsing polychondritis.

CONCLUSIONS: Our study shows that uveitis associated with RP may manifest as generalised, anterior or posterior uveitis. The incidence of inner ear involvement and arthritis in these patients was lower than that in Caucasians. Female patients seem to have milder inflammation and a better visual prognosis.

ConclusionOur findings indicate that there are 3 subgroups of patients with RP, with differences in time to diagnosis, clinical and radiologic characteristics, and disease ‐related complications. Recognizing a broader spectrum of clinical patterns in RP, beyond cartilaginous involvement of the ear and upper airway, may facilitate more timely diagnosis.

ConclusionsThree subgroups of patients with RP were identified that differ in time to diagnosis, clinical and radiological characteristics, and disease ‐related complications. Recognizing a broader spectrum of clinical patterns in RP, beyond just cartilaginous involvement of the ear and upper airway, may facilitate more timely diagnosis.

18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is a promising tool for diagnosing relapsing polychondritis (RP). However, its usefulness in assessing RP with airway involv....

Authors: Semionov A, Kosiuk J, Ajlan A, Discepola F Abstract Identification of certain abnormalities of the chest wall can be extremely helpful in correctly diagnosing a number of syndromic conditions and systemic diseases. Additionally, chest wall abnormalities may sometimes constitute diagnoses by themselves. In the present pictorial essay, we review a number of such conditions and provide illustrative cases that were retrospectively identified from our clinical imaging database. These include pentalogy of Cantrell, Klippel-Feil syndrome, cleidocranial dysplasia, Poland syndrome, osteopetrosis, neurofibromatosis ...
